Paint out in Oxford

For our third meeting the UK Plein Air Society met to start the day at a coffee shop in the High Street. Oxford. It was the day the clocks changed so getting there effectively an hour early was a challenge.
I chose to do this view of the High Street and afterwards thought I might have made a more interesting composition, this one being is so linear. Also all those bay windows did my head in for a while. The blossom tree was such an attraction.

 I had to leave early so didn't have chance to do another piece, but here is a shot of other industrious painters. Roy Connelly, ValĂ©rie Pirlot painting the same spire in Turl Steet.

Also one of Glynis Dray below, doing a fine watercolour in the High Street, obviously enjoying herself.
